6 IT Security Quirks

Ok so I've been tagged, and I decided to do an IT Security quirky list;

Here are the rules:

1) Link to the person that tagged you.
2) Post the rules on your blog.
3) Share six non-important things/habits/quirks about yourself.
4) Tag at least 3 people at the end of your post and link to their blogs.
5) Let each person know they have been tagged by leaving a comment on their blog.
6) Let the fun begin!

1) I need to have some flavor of Unix running on my network at all times, preferably sniffing traffic and running snort.

2) I am willing to sacrifice the speed of my Internet connection so I can run a sniffer, i.e. using a 10 meg hub and plugging my wireless, router, and all my systems into it.

3) Whenever I enter someone else’s house I immediately start to figure out the best way to PWN them.

4) I dislike M$ Windows, however I love using it to tear binaries apart.

5) I have collected a million hand-me-down laptops and PC’s, and still I find myself not having enough computers.

6) I feel the answer to all security related issues is “Just run FreeBSD”!

There...done, now time to tag.
